Hahn Loeser & Parks LLP welcomed Justin L. Yarnell to its Columbus office, as an Associate in its Business Practice Area. Yarnell will focus on tax and corporate transactions and brings significant experience in tax compliance and controversy, including IRS audits, and federal, state, and local tax returns and notices.

He also spent a year as a tax associate with an accounting firm in Cleveland.
“We are very excited for what Justin brings to the Firm and, in particular, our Columbus office as it grows into its brand new space,” remarked Rocco Debitetto, Chair of Hahn Loeser’s Business Practice Area. “His experience with the IRS and in tax disputes at both the administrative and tax court levels, give rise to valuable perspective that our clients will greatly appreciate.”
